Barry Goldwater waves to delegates inside the Cow Palace at the 1964 Republican National Convention in San Francisco. As a senator, he strongly argued that it is a core American value and in the country's best interest to stand by Taiwan as it faced an existential threat from tyrannical communists. Goldwater's contribution to the U.S.-Taiwan relationship made him a figure of enormous importance and won him profound respect on the other side of the Pacific. He championed the passage of the Taiwan Relations Act (TRA), a landmark piece of legislation, which through bipartisan support, was signed into law in April 1979. To this day, that law provides the bedrock for U.S.-Taiwan relations. (Associated Press)

"It's not my personal criticism, but a lot of people's criticism in Taiwan is that, 'Hey, why do we, Taiwan, need such big radar towers that can detect the inner land of mainland China?'" Dale Wen-Chieh Jieh says in a visit to The Washington Times. (Lloyd Villas/The Washington Times)
